Referring to the capture of the Roslyn
bank robbers up in Gilliam county, the
Spokane Review Bays these men were
leaders of a large band of ignorant and
lawless men who emigrated to Oregon
Beveral years ago ' from . the law
less sections of Missouri and Ken
tucky. If their ancestry could be traced
it would probably lead back to desperate
men who operated upon the highways
of England during the 17th and 18th
centuries, when it was quite common for
younger sons of the gentry to take to the
road for their livelihood, and when even
great families, whose fortunes had been
dragged down by the vicissitudes of war
and the changes of dynasties, occasion
ally placed themselves in mountain ex
ile and preyed upon the surrounding
country. Frequently men of his
character, when hot pressed by the
king's forces, sought safety in flight to
America, where they often reformed and
became useful members of society.
It is not yet assured that Grover
Cleveland has secured a mnjority of the
popular vote of the country. Since 1824
the only candidates having a clear ma
jority of votes cast for their electors have
been Andrew Jackson in 1828 and 1832,
Martin Van Buren in 1836, W. H. Har
rison in 1840, Franklin Pierce in 1852,
Abraham Lincoln in 1864, Ulysses S.
Grant in 1868 and 1872, and Samuel J.
Tilden in 1876. It is probable that Mr.
Cleveland has obtained the largept plu
rality ever given to a political party in a
presidential election, except that of
Grant and Greeley in 1872, when Grant
had a plurality of 762,991. The next
largest plurality was 406,905 for . Bu
chanan in 1856, when the republican
party was in its infancy, and the nc-xt
491,195 for Abraham Lincoln in 18(50,
who was in a minority on the whole
vote. Lincoln had 407.342 plurality in
1864, Grant 306,456 in 18ti.s, ana Tilden
250,935 in 1876.
John Brown of the Arlington Record
has the thing down pat. He says : The
fearless editor may offend and lose si
subscriber any at time, but if he is right,
in the end he will gain five. He willob
ain two thereby. If he labor not to
displease any one, if he tries to ride all
the horses in the field, he will be un
horsed by each one of them. The editor
should follow his honest, well-considered
convictions, and the man he should
labor to please is himself. If he does
this without fear or favor, he will have
a greater following and better support
than he who trims his sail to every
changeable breeze, and without chart or
compass, purpose or principle, drifts
. aimlessly about with every shifting tide.
There has just been published in New
York a consensus of opinion of members
elect of the fifty-third congress on the
question of an extra session and repeal
of the McKinley bill. One hundred and
eighty-eight responded out of 356 con
gressmen. Of that number 72 declared
themselves in favor of the extra session,
78 opposed it and 38 were non-committal.
On the question of tariff 75 voted to re
peal the McKinley bill, 44 favored it
with modifications, o7 were opposed to
any change and twelve were non-committal.

It may be that there was some connec
tion between the election and Biela's
comet. Though we do not like to disa
gree with distinguished scientists, we
would suggest that they made a mistake
on the day of conjunction when it might
strike the earth. The Telegram suggests
that if they will look over the data again
they will probably find that the right
dav was November 8, and that there
was no small shaking up on that occa
